Hit the road

Even though Scotland’s second-largest city is a magical place with its charming historic sites and cobbled streets, navigating traffic on the street and finding street parking in the city center can get old, no matter what town. Hire a car in Edinburgh for a day trip or road trip to get out of the city, and you’ll encounter a whole new landscape that’s wholly different from the rest of Europe.

Set your own pickup locations with an SUV rental alternative

Loch Ness

Surrounded by dramatic beauty and home to the mythical Loch Ness Monster, this famous lake in the rugged Scottish Highlands makes for an excellent road trip — take a boat out to search for Nessie.

Stirling

Steeped in folklore and standing strong and tall since the medieval days, Stirling is known as the gateway to the highlands. Head east along the M9 and make time to visit the majestic Stirling Castle.

Elie

Drive along just over an hour to the gorgeous coastal town of Elie and you’ll be met with golden beaches, a historic 16th-century harbor, and spectacular views at the Elie Lighthouse.
